Hoping Your Day is Quite Nice

updated 7/23. There was something off about the original the more I looked at it, the more it disturbed me. I started to rework the card and tore off the top of the tissue tape. Suddenly I loved it. Less than 3/8's of an inch makes such a difference?

Papertrey Ink is having a new challenge Create Along with Us, where we create a card inspired by one of the Design Team's cards. That's the first challenge, how to pick one? I picked Melissa Phillips tea cup of flowers.

Instead of a teacup, I used the cupcake base from Make It Market kit: Party Pops stamped with Classic Kraft and then muted with white pigment ink. The flowers are from Rosie Posie made with the polka dot vellum and stamped with white pigment ink. The back ground is stamped with Background Basics: Gingham and Spring Rain ink and stamped again over a scrap of striped patterned paper. A piece of seam binding for a little more horizontal emphasis. Another piece of scrap is cut with Tim Holtz' On the Edge: Scallops die and a strip of Tim Holtz Tissue Tape. A little distressing with Fine Linen ink and Antique Linen Distress Ink. The sentiment is from Make It Market kit: Nostalgic Notions. A couple of sequins finish it off.
